CLIP Review: The Night Before Kindergarten

Author: Natasha Wing
Illustrator: Julie Durrell
Preschool - Kindergarten

   " 'Twas the night before kindergarten, 
    and as they prepared,
    kids were excited and a little bit scared.
    They tossed and they turned about in their beds,
    While visions of school supplies danced in their heads."

If anyone in your house has the "I'm not sure about going to school" feeling, this book is for you! By the second page you will be caught up in the delightful sing-song rhythm of the verses. The detailed illustrations will have even the most hesitant listener laughing.  Miss Sunrise, the kindergarten teacher, has a day filled with such incredible activities that she has a hard time getting the parents to leave! She finally has to gather them together on the "magical rug", then send them away after one final hug. The children wave to them with shouts of how "cool" kindergarten is.  Your child will easily be interested by the busy illustrations and rhythmic text.
